Study shows millets and legumes combined provide a complete protein, highly digestible and power-packed nutrients

Legumes are the most common plant-based protein sources and more affordable than most protein alternatives, but many are not a complete protein as they are low in one of the essential amino acids – methionine.

A study published in Cereal Chemistry journal has shown the value of legumes and millets as a powerful food combination that has:

  • High levels of protein
  • Complete protein (all essential amino acids)
  • High protein digestibility
  • High levels and wide range of major micronutrients


Reflecting on Protein deficiency in India

More than 70% of Indians are protein deficient. To solve this sustainably we need to eat more legumes -and if you combine with millets you make a complete protein with tons of micronutrients. See this excellent overview
